Detour to China

Not always just roundabout routes, detours can be chosen paths. They bring to a destination, rather than to a stop by along the way. Was it the intense traffic pushing us to take a detour? Or the desire for exploring something new, distant and unusual?

The Chinese city of Harbin, 10 million inhabitants squeezed between North Korea and Russian Federation borders lived up to all our expectations. A 12 hour-long flight catapulted us into a freezing -25 °C alien reality, far from being hostile, full of contrasts and unavoidable misunderstandings. Follow us in the next weeks along this winter detour to North East China. Pictures shot by Lorenzo Borghi, editing by Maria Francesca.
